    I attended Summit K-12, and I am beyond thankful that my parents made the sacrifice to send me here. Summit gave me an amazing education, character-building skills, and lifelong friends. Faith is the core of Summit: the chapel is even placed in the center between the three divisions. Summit gave opportunities for all of my classmates to be faithful and mindful, even if not Catholic. The academics are certainly challenging, but in a good way. My teachers have become invaluable mentors. I would not trade the memories I made here for the world!

    Love this school! We have had a fantastic experience at The Summit from Montessori through the Upper School. My children are known and appreciated for their unique gifts, and each is encouraged and empowered to become his or her best self. The faculty and staff nurture in every child each of The Summit's five pillars, and the character education is exceptional. The benefits go on and on!
    The Summit is tops! We put all three of our boys through the school, and I’m certain that it was the best choice that we/they could have made. The academic preparation was exceptional, and our boys developed close relationships with several faculty members. Their athletic experiences were outstanding as well. Each boy played multiple sports all the way through, and they were blessed to play for great coaches who made character their primary focus. As a launching-off point for college and life, The Summit provided everything we could have hoped for.
